DESCRIPTION More than a thousand volunteers help repair classrooms, shelters and playgrounds, paint over graffiti, organize inventory, build garden beds and plant trees, etc. -- tasks that these local local United Way agencies don't have the money or resources to do themselves. "Day of Caring" is an opportunity to help local United Way services with your time and energy on a September Saturday morning. There will be enough tasks to suit everyone who wants to help out, such as envelope stuffing, activities helping children, painting, and cleaning. It also marks the kickoff of the Annual Community Campaign which benefits your local "United Way". A free continental breakfast will be served at Page Youth Center to all participants, and if you register in time you'll receive a free T-shirt identifying you as a Day of Caring Volunteer. You will be met at your assigned agency by a staff person or volunteer who will organize and supply you with whatever tools you might need.
